Introduction: Wheelbarrow Made From Plastic Barrel.

1- Get a plastic barrel that can be cut up. Take a skill-saw or other cutting tool to cut the barrel in half.

2- Get 2 U shaped bolts to bolt it onto the dolly. Simple.

Step 1: Now Just Use in Areas Required.

I don't own a wheelbarrow, so this conversion has helped me so much doing work in the garden.

Step 2: New Planters

Do the same again. Take the other half barrel and cut in half again and screw it onto a back board. Then fill with compost and plant lovely flowers etc once the spring comes.

So one barrel has made a wheelbarrow and 2 planters. All for free.

    Would be much better it was the kind of hand cart that was equipped with four wheels.

    The two wheel makes it easier to tip when using it for stones etc. The 4 wheels would be good for lugging stuff around. I happened to have a 2 wheel cart, so that's what I ended up using.

    Nice idea.

    Could add some handles so that you don’t have to bend down too far to reach the bars.
